johnny-jump-up and into my terrarium

Even though Johnny-jump-ups posses a boy's name, I always think of them as girls. The tiny wild ones that grow in my yard remind me of young ballerinas, dancing delicately in the breeze. I decided to put some of these little girls in my terrarium. I tucked this patch, which was tethered to some moss, into a galvanized chicken waterer. Now they have center stage.

Terrarium available at Farmhouse Wares.

I actually have a terrarium (not like yours) but have never used it really for anything... I've been thinking violets.

Johnny-Jumps-Up's have been one of my favorite flower since I was a little girl. They look so cute in your terrarium..
